Re: Reading one line at a time using NSFileHandle

I read the CocoaBuilder thread to no avail. fgets won't work in my case because
my text file contains special characters which fgets mangles.

BTW, my file is not large - less than 1K. And I know it's encoding - MacRoman.
And I know the line endings "/n".

But what I don't know is which API to use to read non-ASCII lines of text one
at a time from one file, and write them to another file after processing each

One would think Cocoa would have something like fgets but that works with any

Is it my imagination or did we not just have a big thread about this...?
